No link, it's just an opinion piece, but I don't know where else to put it other than politics.

I realized early on that all the news networks complaining about Trumps use of twitter and encouraging it to stop (pretending it was only hurting him) was for their own selfish reasons. They feared him
circumventing their lenses
and making any liars about his motivations, well, impotent and obsolete.

Trump is far ahead of his time in this regard, the Leader of the Free World who is constantly marketing, getting his message out and receiving feedback directly to voters. It's so simple, yet, ground breaking and it's reinforced and expanded his support.

He reaches out to people and read many tweets. You know this, as he retweets people who I've never heard of before. It angers those in the MSM and positions of influence as they cannot stop it. He basically goes directly to the public. I don't even look at him as a man in his 70's, he operates like he 30 years old. Inspiring really. He has the energy and Will Power to remain dynamic, treating his presidency with the passion he had in the business world. Contagious to the average American.

Most politician just shrug off the average person, and they don't realize it is in fact THEY who they need to listen to. We saw this with the election of of the socialist Cortez. She upset the #4 in the Democratic Party as she went direct to the voters and made her case, her competitor complacent and entitled, taking it al or granted. Trump also reaches out to the people, he does this to constantly get feedback on what is popular and right, he knows what he wants to do, but, he is rewarded when he finds out his policies are popular.

Trump respects the average person, listens to them. Even if he feigns interest in some cases, the fact is, people are heard. That's huge. He doesn't listen to lobbyists as much as he keeps his finger on the pulse of his supporters and voters, frustrating all who try and get influence with him for their OWN benefit, but at his political cost.

There is a reason he has almost 90% of the GOP fiercely supporting him, it will continue to defy people. Like his position on tariffs. Try as they might to get him to recant and in fact hurt himself (and the U.S economy and Middle Class in the process, for their own selfish objectives), he stays the course and doubles down. His position on immigration, his love of the military and first responders. They can't break him, and his followers on twitter and many independents and ex-democrats using twitter to suggest they are behind him now, just reinforce that he is right.

I hope he does well in the midterms, his positions are so popular with his supporters and so much at stake, I believe they will be behind him and come out in droves. Americans finally have their fighter and they won't let him down at the polls as long as he remains true to them.

Thank you for your time.

God Bless America! Get'er done Trump!

Even Trump's most vociferous detractors will be forced to admit he is in touch with the average American citizen on a visceral level. And this factor alone gives rise to his popularity. ... :cool:
So was Jesus and you saw what that got him.

Ok....this is laughable. I like some of what trump has done and am glad he is there instead of Clinton. However to tell me that a multi billionaire can relate to people working barely scraping by is beyond dumb. Class division is a huge aspect in this nation. That's reality.

You see, that's the magic of it. Of course his circle is different, wasn't Obamas and Clintons? Do you think Clinton or Obama shop at the same stores I would, eat or live the same way I do? Of course not. Whether one is worth billions or "just" $100M it makes no difference to the average person, it's a different world.

So Maxine is living in a $4M home, while out there riling up people to rebel. She pretends she is living hand to mouth and they are, but it's a crock. Trump tells you he's loaded. You know he is, he is proud of it, and why not? He built his brand on swagger and making money. He's the real life Gordon Gekko. Also, he respects hard work, of all his traits I truly believe this of him.

He knows he has not been perfect. At times on the campaign he almost asked for forgiveness while reaching out to the Religious class who often support Conservatives. They know he's not perfect, but they also know he has their back on religious freedom and judge selection etc. He promised them, and to date he has kept his word. No more loyal class than the religious you can be sure. In the end, I like that he has a shyteload of cash, he earned it far more than a career politician.

Nobody believes he's a Saint. But I am willing to bet, if you are down and out, and ask a politician or Trump for a than out, Trump will be there for you first, as long as you are genuine and have passion in your heart,

People forget, and I read about him long before his political or even showbiz life; he's been down and out too. He's had the vultures circle him, it's not as if he doesn't have a heart, but he has learned you don't want to be exploited. Which is why he stands for America, he knows that they are being exploited.

As I said, there is a unique character to Trump. I agree with him as I've seen the same. I know of a guy who had every advantage in life, he took to vices and is sitting in the klink. His life wasted. I know of other guys, smart as hell, but circumstances and our system quite frankly ate them up. I know of people in their MBA, who were lazy and not as bright as their paper degree suggested, they never achieved their goals.

Trump often says the same, he respects effort and ambition. He loves people who don't quit and I can tell you, if there is any great traits for Americans (or Canadians for that matter) to possess it would be that fighting spirit.

The irony of course, is unlike a guy who made a billion overnight because of timing and luck, like Mark Cuban, or some hotshot on Wall Street who sat in an office, not to denigrate either, but Trump was getting his hands dirty on site. Rubbing shoulders with the guys with their shyte kickers on and also billionaire bankers and executives. I sense he prefers the company of the blue collar guys, he knows they are genuine.

As a guy who played around the sharks his whole life, it to be comforting to hang out with those in the working class who will give you the shirt off theirs back. He doesn't feel threatened by them, and now he is rewarding them, and the country at large. He loves his country. He worked hard, he employed thousands and gave back, but this to him is his greatest gift to his country.

God Bless America! Get 'er done Trump!

^^ I really love when leftists pretend that one of the world's richest businessman is a failure in business.

That just shows, not only are they not connecting with Americans. They have trouble connecting to any sort of actual reality.

he wants to protect out borders--especially from ILLEGALS
how much more basic, common sense can you get????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is one of the reasons a LOT of Americans--on both sides---like him
how could not the other POTUSs take such a firm stand on this??
Trump is more common sense for the ''common'' American
...he is saying what a lot of Americans have been saying [ and wanting/needing ]for years!!

...where as Obama hid behind politics......was AFRAID to say what was needed/sensible
...Obama didn't want to offend the CRIMINALS/CRIMINALITY [ illegal hispanics/blacks attacking cops ]
..god forbid if someone does what is right--the correct thing

Trump is a very successful business man and well on his way to being a very successful POTUS.

All the lefty loons will just have to suck it up. LOL
